Gear Up

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter G. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their G element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Amber's blog ~ Scrapper's Therapy

Big G, little g, what begins with G?

I had a tough time figuring out what I wanted to do for G!  Glitter, girls, grandparents, gems, ...what to do!?  Then I saw my card with gears and the layout I had done with gears and I knew that was it!

The gears are so boy and easy to cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  There are multiple different gears ( most on pg. 38-39 of the Artiste book) and with the Cricut they can be different sizes and papers making them look totally different! 

This card is so fun for a party invite!  The inside has the word party on it!  I used the Later Sk8er paper and black button assortment for the embellishments on the gears!

The picture below are of a layout done with Later Sk8r and I used the Green and Blue Epoxy Bubbles , Outdoor Denim Bakers Twine  , and Later Sk8r Stickease to embellish the gears cut on the cricut!  I also stamped some of the images using the Fast and Furious stamp set.

These groupings of gears were used on these pages that I created based on the Idea Book layouts on pgs. 44 and 47.
